GRLSQUASH, ISSUE THREE: TAKING ROOT
This issue is about taking root, by force, because it isn’t always given to us by someone else. It’s about the colonizer and the colonized, as well as the decolonization of certain foods + practices. TAKING ROOT could be a collection of poems you wrote when you were living in rural Tuscany and missing home (and companionship) something fierce, or a recipe you turn to when you’re sick and in need of something that soothes + grounds you. Maybe TAKING ROOT is a photo essay of monochromatic meals you style with your sister because they remind y’all of the same kitsch your grandmother’s house was filled with. Maybe your roots are more literal because your connection to the earth grows deep into dirt along with the foods you grow and harvest. Maybe TAKING ROOT is your ode to tubers whose starchy flesh thrives beneath the soil.
